in the city in ohio and if i did not have a public pension i think that would have been working for the rest of my life. an earlier caller mentioned pensions being affected, but when this crisis happened, you had to have some faith in the economic system. when you look at what happened during the depression, we came out of it. i figured at that time that the country would eventually come out of it. where would we have been five years later? nowhere. i have a tendency to side with the republicans, but at the same time i still think that some of those protections were warranted for people. into the system you get so many people on fox news, knocking down public pensions. the average person in ohio makes about $26,000 per year. all of that talk about locking down those pensions is just bad, really bad, they should stop it. host: what is your pension look like? tell us about it. caller: it is not a bad tension. they did change this, it has changed. you are able to retire at 55, but they changed it to 57. you need 25 years in the system to do that. most people will go for 30 years in ohio. i am a
district on the city council went in a district 71% african-american to 30% african-american, and the only african-american member of the city council in that city in alabama lost his seat. so that to me seems like a perfect reason why we still need section 5. they drew the district in such a way that it resulted in the on black member of the city council losing his district. yes, this stuff happens in ohio and pennsylvania and wisconsin. but it happens more often, still, in places like alabama, texas, and mississippi. and that's why section 5 so many different people across the legal spectrum are urging it be upheld. host: maverick rights in and says, the voting act law should expand to all states after seeing the obvious suppression attempts and tactics in the 2012 election. guest: well, if they are going to say it needs to be expanded, yes, that would then treat states the same. and particularly in terms of the evidence. ari keeps saying that there's more discrimination in covered states. that is simply not true. the facts do not bear that out at all. and if are you going to have sectio
pizzay is in vat cal city. dow corning. >> reporter: good morning. a vatican spokesman reviewed that benedict has been wearing a pacemaker for some time and had an operation to replace the battery only three months ago. how much his declining health and the strain of dealing with the leaks and sex abuse scandals is open to speculation. vatican insiders say only a few of his closest aides knew in advance. with his brief announcement in latin, benedict set a modern precedent that ensures his successors can follow the same both. as one put it, he broke a taboo. catholics around the world reacted with surprise, some sadness, but overall there was a sense that benedict had done the right thing for himself and the church. >> it is an act of humility for the pope to realize that he can no longer physically and mentally discharge the duties of his office. >> reporter: even as benedict's legacy is being debated the struggle for succession has begun behind the scenes.

a few years ago i found myself sitting next to the mayor of salt lake city and he was a nice guy and we started talking about what i do for a living and i told him i work to encourage young women and girls to run for a political office. why, he said? which stumps me because in my world, the question of why we need more women, is not a question but how do we get more women there. he went on to say i have two daughters, i have a wife, i have a more, he said, i know what women need and what can women do in office that i can't do? and it was an interesting question and he had no idea what a can of worms he was opening by getting into this conversation with me because i really believe no matter how well intentioned a man in office is, his decisions are never going to be as strong if you have men and women legislating together. i'm happy to say in the years i started doing this work is the world has come around to this idea, the idea is we need to add women to leadership, not because it's fair or it's the right thing to do but because adding more women to leadership is going to make stronger
. peter, calling from new york city. hey, peter. >> caller: hey bill, good morning. how are you? >> bill: thanks for joining us. what's your take on all of this? >> caller: my take is that i'm actually alarmed that we think that we can't cut $85 billion out of a $3.6 trillion budget or to put it another way about 1/3 of 1% of the $17 trillion gross domestic product and think that this is going to crater our economy. if our economy is that weak, then there's been no recovery and what is the point anyway? if we're really concerned about the cuts, bill, why don't you advocate the president give all of the different departments to take the cuts and allocate it so it's best used so it is not across the board. >> bill: first he can't do that. of the sequester is legislation passed by congress which calls for across-the-board cuts. the president can't unilaterally rewrite legislation. so that's the first thing my response to you peter is first of all, i would say -- the congressional budget office says it is going to shrink the economy by 1.3%. it is going to reverse our economic recovery and i
